Methadone is a prescription only medicine that can be taken orally and is used mainly to treat opioid addiction. Is was initially developed as a painkiller but now it is much more widely used to treat people who have got stuck on heroin or other opioid drugs (such as prescription painkillers).
Suboxone is a combination of two drugs – buprenorphine and naloxone – that work chemically to decrease the severity of withdrawal symptoms and reduce a patient’s dependence on opioids in the long term.
Addiction requires individualized treatments that address the symptoms and underlying causes of the disease, as well as the consequences that substance use has on different areas of a person’s life. This includes their ability to socialize, their physical and mental health, and consequences at work, home, school, or with the law. There are many types of therapy available to effectively treat addiction.
(MAT) is the use of Methadone or Suboxone medication in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. A combination of medication and behavioral therapies is effective in the treatment of substance use disorders and can help some people to sustain recovery.
Integrated treatment planning that includes substance use screening and treatment is key to providing better health outcomes in integrated care.
